Hobart's localised chill
« Reply #40 on: June 13, 2020, 09:40:47 PM »
Hobart has shivered through a rather cold day after a slow-moving trough stalled over the region.

Hobart only reached a top of 8.3 degrees during the daytime on Friday, about 4 degrees below average. The cool 7.6 degrees at 3pm was the lowest June 3pm temperature in 4 years..

Heavy rain approaching Eastern Tasmania

The mix of a Tasman Low and a trough will direct some heavy rainfall to Tasmania’s east early in the week, possibly leading to some flash-flooding.

As a cold front and complex low pressure system crosses over southeastern Australia this weekend, a Tasman Low looks to form just off Victoria’s east coast and slowly track east.

While this low does not look too significant in terms of wind and waves, it will allow a trough to draw moist air from the Coral Sea, past Lord Howe Island, then wrapping around to condense over Tasmania’s east on Monday and Tuesday; a roughly 2500km journey.

Well, that was an incredible 24 hours for the NSW resorts with 70-100cms of snow in a 24-hour period, the higher totals falling above 1800 metres, but there was also snow all the way down to Jindabyne and beyond.

The first snow fall came through on Sunday with a few centimetres during the day before things kicked in overnight, leaving 17cms on the deck outside my place in Thredbo Village  and 40+cms on the mountain by yesterday morning.

The snow kept falling all day, dumping at times, before it finally eased at around 8pm last night and there’s a few lingering snow showers today. The result is 100% of the terrain  in the NSW resorts now has a good base and more lifts will open this week.

https://www.sott.net/article/438880-A-year-of-extremes-Bushfire-ravaged-towns-in-Australia-now-hit-by-severe-floods

Coastal towns ravaged by unrelenting bushfires just six months ago are now suffering severe floods after days of wild weather.

A low pressure system off Australia's east coast brought 120km/h winds overnight and dumped more than 180mm of rain across several areas of New South Wales.

Dramatic pictures captured the extent of severe flooding, which forced some residents to evacuate and left about 14,500 homes and businesses without power.

The towns in Shoalhaven, on the NSW south coast, had only just began recovering from the bushfires, which left hundreds homeless.

'It's been a shocker. It's terrible we have to go through this all over again,' Shoalhaven City Mayor Amanda Findley told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.

'This is actually our second flood since the bushfires.

Drought-stricken farmers are celebrating after heavy rains across south-east New South Wales have transformed landscapes and fortunes.



The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said several rain records had been broken thanks to two consecutive lows off the east coast in recent weeks.

BOM climatologist Agata Imielska said much of the South Coast of NSW recorded more than four times the July average rain.

"Bega had very significant rainfall — recording 299.4 millimetres of rain which is the wettest July since 1922," she said.

"Moruya received 137mm in 24 hours which is a July record for daily rainfall in 65 years," she said.

"We've also seen some significant three-day rainfall totals — Narooma recorded 190mm and Brogo recorded 231mm — both creating new records."

A chilling week expected for Adelaide and Melbourne

A chilling week expected for Adelaide and Melbourne
Hannah Wilson, Sunday August 2, 2020 - 12:18 EST
Temperatures forecast for as low as 6 degrees below the August average in Adelaide and Melbourne this week, as a cold front leaves a chilling airmass in its wake.

A cold front and trough are expected to cross Australia's south east late on Monday morning, bringing a very cold airmass to the region along with some gusty onshore winds; only to add to the chill. While high pressure looks to build in the wake of this system, a lingering trough may continue to bring some partly cloudy conditions, limiting daytime heating, especially in Melbourne. A top of just 10 degrees is forecast for Tuesday in Melbourne, 5 degrees below the average. With some at times gusty southwesterly winds expected and possible showers and thunderstorms, it may potentially feel 2-3 degrees cooler.
